In what is already a jam packed summer of UK, European and American festival appearances as well as a support slot with Green Day at Wembley Stadium, Frank Turner is also finding time to release his new single ‘Try This At Home’ on 2nd August 2010.
The fourth song to be lifted from ‘Poetry Of The Deed’, ‘Try This At Home’ is a raucous call to arms. Embodying the true spirit of punk rock – it is all about the DIY ethos that drives the punk scene and encourages anyone and everyone to pick up a guitar, jot down some words, and just give it go.
And it is with this spirit that Frank is offering the chance for a new, unsigned act to be on the B-side of the single. In a fantastic, one-off competition Frank, together with labels Xtra Mile Recordings (UK) and Epitaph Records (rest of the world) is asking for new and original music to be sent to him for consideration for the b-side. There will be two winners chosen by Frank together with Kerrang! in the UK and Alternative Press in the USA – with both winning tracks included as the B-Sides of a limited edition coloured vinyl – 1000 copies each for the UK and the rest of the world.
Having just completed his first ever tour of Australia, China and Israel Frank returns to play a staggering array of festivals over the summer months including headlining Wood and 2000trees, main stage performance at Latitude, two sets at Glastonbury and the NME/Radio1 Stage at Reading and Leeds. And that’s not to mention being invited by Green Day to play at their Manchester and Wembley Stadium shows in June.
